A fantastic break from the hustle and bustle of Ipanema/Copacabana/Leblon!
We had a lovely stay! Stuart and Mauricio were excellent hosts - very attentive and willing to speak with us while also very sensitive to whether we wanted to interact or do our own thing. They were even kind enough to offer us a ride to Ipanema, as they were heading in that direction, too. Their dogs were an extra bonus - two sweet little hosts in their own right!
Nothing! If I had to make one observation, I'd recommend describing the rooms' differentiators in more detail. When we booked, there were two rooms left to choose from. They were both lovely rooms, but the one I didn't pick was on a higher floor and therefore would have been the one to get since we prioritize the view. The one I did select was the one to get if we had prioritized privacy, since it stood alone with no neighbors. To be fair, the room descriptions had different photos, but until I saw the property in person I didn't conceptualize the difference, so perhaps describing each room's strengths (and relative floors) could avoid confusion for future guests. Otherwise, we had a perfect stay!
Wonderful hosts, beautiful house and beautiful location. Would definitely recommend it
Fantastic property and lovely hosts
We were made to feel so welcome and the house is lovely. Our hosts also helped us to organise taxis and trips. If I were to return to Rio I would definitely stay again. It was nice to venture a little west of Rio and see Sao conrado beach.
Country paradise in Rio
Stuart and Mauricio were the most hospitable and entertaining hosts I've ever encountered. They went the extra mile with everything and I felt like I was staying with friends. The freshly baked coffee cakes in the morning were a real treat and my room was large, airy and comfortable. Their two miniature Schnauzers were a delight and I enjoyed playing with them. Although the guesthouse is in the city, it's in a neighborhood that feels like the country and is away from the The hustle and bustle. Yet it's easy to get to anywhere in Rio as taxis are very inexpensive. This is how a guest house should be run. After four days I was sad to leave.
Nothing. It was ideal.
Casa Verde is my new second home!!
Staff was amazing! You are left feeling as if you have family in Brazil! You could not ask for a bettter experince staying at Casa Verde. Great food, Great people, Amazing accomodations.
There is nothing to not like about this stay!

Absolutely stunning place surrounded by ancient forest yet close to Rio's best beaches and attractions. The guys can't do enough to make you feel at home and the breakfast was out of this world. Great suites with beautiful woodwork throughout. The pool deck with steamroom is great and totally private. So luxurious and comfortable we slept like babies. We will definitely be back. A quick uber ride to beaches, forest and activities like hang gliding. Great place to escape from it all. Even the two doggies are loving and happy to see you.

My wife and I recently stayed in casa verde, and had an amazing time. Stuart and Mauricio were incredible hosts and were very accommodating. We had a mishap a few months ago that prevented us from traveling on our scheduled date. They were very understanding and credited our deposit to our new booking date, something most places would not honor. The room was spacious and clean, and came with 2 very special alarm clocks, Bobby and Pepper, their 10 yr old Schnauzers. It was wonderful being greeted by them each morning. We were also presented with a lovely breakfast spread that included homemade zucchini cake that was delicious. We had so derful chats with Stuart and Mauricio who showed us how to use uber to conveniently get around and helped sort out our bus service for the next stay. The home is beautifully decorated and furnished and has a good location in the mountain with a view, yet close enough to the beach and downtown area. We certainly felt like we were treated like family and would stay here again in a heartbeat if we travel back to Rio. Thank you Stuart & Mauricio!

I had a wonderful time at Casa Verde. I wanted to see different sides of Rio so spent a couple of days in Ipanema doing the faster paced things then moved to Casa Verde to enjoy the quiet and lush scenery. The property is beautiful with spacious rooms, (some with great views to the ocean) and lush gardens. There is a lovely pool for relaxing and even a steam room. Breakfast was plenty with cakes and pastries and Stuart and Mauricio were helpful in providing for my special dietary needs. Mauricio bakes an amazing cake which couldn't be resisted! The gardens were lovely and sometimes you could see beautiful birds and little monkeys. Even though the property had the feeling of being more remote I could still walk down to the beach to have a meal at a cafe which was handy. The cab fare back into town was affordable when required and I believe there is buses nearby. They also organised a fixed price airport cab for me which was really good value. As I was traveling solo I was a little concerned about how I would manage being out of town but Stuart and Mauricio were wonderful hosts who were keen to help with any enquiries.

I can't say enough about the hospitality and warmth I received from owners Stuart and Mauricio during my four-day stay. I left feeling like part of the family. The surroundings and the accommodation were lush and comfortable and the breakfasts, with homemade baked goods were something I looked forward to each morning. My room was large and airy with a gorgeous marble bathroom and a glassed-in shower. I was close to the pool with a view of the canopy of trees and a slice of the beach. Although Casa Verde is in Sao Conrado, which is what gives it the feeling of countryside in the city, it's still very easy and inexpensive to get around Rio by taxi. So if you want to experience what Rio has to offer, yet have a peaceful setting, Casa Verde is the place. The adorable miniature schnauzers, Pepper and Bobby, certainly added to the homey feeling.

Having travelled for three weeks around Brazil Casa Verde was our last stop before home and we definitely left the best till last we couldn't have found a nicer place to stay! As soon as we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Stuart, Mauricio and of course Bobby and Pepper. Their house was amazing and made for a lovely relaxing few days before returning home, any questions we had they were more than happy to answer and they gave us some great tips on where to eat and shop. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome at Casa Verde!
